Lithuania’s Ambassador to Italy presents his letters of credence to Captains Regent of San Marino
On 5 December, the Ambassador of Lithuania to Italy Ričardas Šlepavičius presented his letters of credence to the leaders of San Marino – Captains Regent Matteo Fiorini and Enrico Carattoni.
“Lithuania and San Marino’s activities within the United Nations, the Council of Europe, and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe are based on the same principles that form a strong, value-based relationship between our countries,” said Lithuania’s Ambassador, who also underlined the possibility of increasing trade between the two countries, promoting tourism, and boosting people-to-people contacts.
“I believe that participating in various business exhibitions would give us a good opportunity to establish direct relationships between our business communities,” said Šlepavičius, who also invited San Marino’s companies to participate in business and trade exhibitions in Lithuania, as well as in presentations.
San Marino is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy. It is also the world’s oldest republic. Lithuania’s Ambassador to Italy is also accredited to Malta and San Marino, and serves as the Permanent Representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.
